This concentration provides individuals with a basic understanding of the principles, concepts and procedures necessary to start a small business. After completing core and elective courses, students apply their knowledge through an entrepreneurial capstone course that requires the development of a complete business plan. During this capstone course, students work independently, with faculty guidance, but without the benefit of classroom instruction. Business plans are reviewed by a committee of volunteer advisers from the business community who may establish their own guidelines and requirements for the business plan.
Note: Most credits earned in this certificate program can be applied toward the associate degree program in Business with a major in General Business. Many courses require prerequisites, corequisites and/or testing. See course descriptions for details.
